Hi. I am evaluating FarCry. My question is about how to organise the setup.
My main development uses CF as a server for JSON files for apps rather than HTML. I now need a web site for the most recent app and am looking at FarCry as the CMS to deliver that content. I use CF10 on both my local host and my shared hosting with an ISP. I have a few domains delegated to various webroots on that shared hosting and want FarCry to be available in just one of them to serve HTML content to just that one domain.
I just had a bad experience with another CMS which wasted hours of time so I am asking these questions before I go ahead!
On my localhost can I install farcry into a subfolder? eg C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\Sites\mysite or does it need to be in C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot ? I just tried it by setting a /farcry mapping to get the installer running but it then copied files to C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot anyway and runs from http://127.0.0.1:8500/ rather than C:\ColdFusion10\cfusion\wwwroot\Sites\mysite. Admin wont run either, it keeps trying to run from the webroot. Maybe I also need to create some kind of alias under IIS?
On my shared hosting for a domain like www.mysite.com.au which points to /httpdocs do I just upload the unzipped /farcry folder to /httpdocs giving /httpdocs/farcry ? Do I need to set any mappings or is it all “local” to that folder? (I am guessing it does not need mappings but I am just checking!)
Thanks for your forebearance on these basic questions. I did try this forum first but couldnt locate the answers.
